People spend a lot of time on sending and reading emails and this bothers many people.
But there are a few tricks to do one of which being a Gmail trick.
This trick can change the way you manage your mailbox.

For example, let’s assume your email is firstname.lastname@example.org. When you add a +example to it before the @, any messages which is sent to email@example.com goes directly to your main mailbox.
It changes your email from one address to endless number of possibilities.
And why is it worth using?
To organize your inbox.
By using rules, you can automatically array your mails depending on to whom they are addressed. For instance, for all of your online shopping accounts, you can create JackWilsonfirstname.lastname@example.org and use one for filtering the whole correspondence into a particular folder.
Moreover, it also simplifies it for you for later searches for times you won’t be able to recall the name of a specific site.
You won’t miss significant mails
You can flag up significant emails in all email services (for example your mother, lawyer etc.). However, this will be in vain unless you know the address they will send the email.
You can use rules to ascertain everything sent to it from any mail address will be shown at the top of your mailbox for important people whose mails you don’t want to miss, if you share a secret email (for example JackWilsonemail@example.com) with them.
